Stop the Epipen Price Gouging

Messages Sent So Far
We ask that there be an investigation and regulation into the 420% (adjusted for inflation!) increase in the price of Epipens since 2004.

Millions of people with severe allergies carry EpiPens to reverse life-threatening allergic reactions.

With this oppressive price increase, many EMT's and families are turning to manual syringes as a cheaper alternative, though doctors and patient advocates warn that it?s more complicated to get the correct dose of epinephrine and it administer safely with a syringe. Some families will be forced to hang on to expired Epipens, or worse, go without entirely.

There is no discernible reason for the increase other than Mylan's desire to use their monopoly to exploit the need for this life-saving medication for exorbitant profit.

Thank you.

There's people that just can't afford this. Engineering I can see, but project should be no higher than 3%.

When will you get rid of lobbyists and start working for the people? Negotiating prices with the drug companies is not even good enough. Single payer is the only way and if Congress does not support this, they will all be voted out in 2018. Do the right thing and start wit this EpiPen problem. Show the people that you are not bought and paid for.

I recently went into anaphylaxis due to not having an Epi-Pen when I needed one. The reason why I didn't have it...PRICE!!! This is a life-saving tool & needs to be more affordable. NO ONE asks to have a life-threatening allergy and no one should have to go into DEBT to get what they need.

Why is she not charged with her greedy executives? The average American will be imprisoned for stealing $5 dollars? The American People have really let the foxes run the hen house

The price increase is the picture of greed! Offering a generic at 1/2 off is simply a large price increase from the costs in 2009. My federal cost of living increase in the same time is 3%. Sickening greed, shame on you!

This is absurd, People need these to live. The fact that the price of a simple epipen can exceed $600 or more just shows how little these companies care about our citizens. What if it was your son or daughter who needed the pen and you couldn't afford it. How would you feel knowing the company cares more about money than a childs survival.

When considering cost of EpiPens, please keep in mind the amount of EpiPens necessary. For instance, our family requires multiple EpiPens for our children with life threatening allergies. TEN EpiPens are needed in order to keep our children safe: School for child 1, school for child 2, daycare, home, and in mother's purse. Ten EpiPens are very costly for our family and we have private insurance via an employer group, Harris County.

http://www.naturalhealth365.com/vaccination-legislation-2239.html Representative Virginia Foxx is up to her old treasonous tricks The text of H.R. 1313 outlines how companies and employees who abide by the appointed “wellness guidelines” including compulsory vaccinations can save up to half on their insurance premiums. This means those who don’t comply will be paying double for refusing vaccination and other designated “health measures.”
